Lipizzaner Stallions

Ho, one blast from da past! I was going through old PictureTrail photos, and came across these ones. This was before I had a cell phone, so uploaded them from my memory card. Remember dem tings? Well, I still use ’em, but anyways…I tried to get good photos of the horses and riders, but there was so much movement that it was really hard to capture all the action.  I think we saw them in 2007. So for what it’s worth…

The show started with the flag-bearer coming out.

Montana Road Trip 2010, Chapter Forty-Seven

Well, I just finished going back and redoing all the photos from Da Mystery Road Trip Revealed from 2009.  I decided that I wasn’t happy with having all our photos messed up like that; and I’d worked too darn hard to upload them in the first place. I’m glad I did it. It took a long time, but it was worth it.

So now, here we are, back to our Montana Road Trip. Finally.

Tour de Fleece 2019

I wasn’t able to spin as much as I’d hoped to, but I did get some stuff done during this year’s TdF… my spinning challenge Numbah One was to finish spinning the red/yellow/pink braid and to work on continuing to spin Maxwell’s fleece. Who’s Maxwell? He was an adorable Shetland sheep that I met one day several years ago. You can read about him and his brother here.

So frustrated!!

So I happened to go back to some posts from about 2009, and found that all my photos have been blurred/watermarked by Photobucket. Because I’m now over their limit, which used to be free web-hosting. Which is why I added them there, because at the time it was easier to download my photos from there.  So now I have to go back and upload them from my computer (after I’ve found the right folders) and re-add them.

Which is why I haven’t been writing much. I’m also doing Tour de Fleece again this year and it’s been a busy summer…but I’m gonna try write here more often in between re-doing all my photos. Sheesh.

Stories Numbah Chree: Trains

Some peeps have asked me hakum I love trains so much. I think part of it was because my Papa-san worked for the Kahului Railroad on Maui.  I have some photos he took of the old trains when he was there.  Lidis one:
